It's set in stone, for a number of reasons.
First it keeps the games more uniform, and we feel having some basic consistency between games actually helps with giving a sense of quality (because the basic experience is consistent). This also helps to keep *snip*

Taking on Battleship Ethereals is pretty damn far in! Even with one of the easier races, Battleships can take a lot to beat.
However I'm surprised you don't have flying suits by then.

Ah, the joys of UFO. It sounds like a supply ship, and so yes, you have messed that level up.
You could leave someone up there, and just hit skip turn for about 10 minutes to see if you get lucky.
You could also try shooting through the floor from undern*snip*

Desktop Tower Defence, Angry Birds, Oblivion; seriously??? Morrowind and Skyrim were better than Oblivion. I'd even put Arena above it.
No UFO: Enemy Unknown either, one of the all time greatest strategy games. However I'm glad Myth is on there!

Best way to start with java?

17th November 2012

BlueJ is an excellent tool for learning Java, however if you already have a year or two of programming, I'd maybe skip it. Especially if you have already programming with any OO languages, and are used to working with classes and objects.
After BlueJ, the*snip*

Yeah, the packaging looks legit, however every part of that is easy to pirate. No holographic sticker, no fat RFID sticker, and I have seen more elaborate packaging on goods that I knew were pirate.
So the pictures don't really prove anything.

Have a game where he moves constantly across, dragging the mouse up has the guy jump in that direction (based on how far up), down does some thinning similar, but crouched/skidding based.
So it's like a 'head towards the mouse y location' game.

Windoze 8 upgrade

8th November 2012

Metro applications can have adverts, like iOS, and it's up to the app developer. Although you'd probably expect many free ones will.
The annoying thing is that some of the official MS apps have adverts in them; that's the bit I really don't like. Even App*snip*

What indie dev issues are there? All your standard desktop stuff should work fine, it's only on the net Windows store where people have claimed ideological problems.
Putting that aside, Windows 8 is excellent. The start screen is different, but you get us*snip*

If you turn off location features on the iPad, it can really improve the battery life.

Kindle Fire HD

I've not used the kindle fire HD, but looking at the specs, it's really not as good as the ipad 3. Lower resolution, smaller screen, only a tad more powerful (and software is what really makes the difference). That's also looking at the top end kindle fire*snip*

Preloading assets in C#

28th October 2012

If you can't preload them all, then just preload the ones you need. Why pick at random?
If you want to preload some you might need, then preload the most common assets, or preload the smallest.
No point in just picking at random.

It depends on what you really mean by 'preloading'. If you mean whilst the level is loading, before the actual gameplay starts, then yes, that is normally the best approach.
If you mean when the game starts up, that is the most ideal scenario, however it *snip*

Windows 8 rant. >-0

21st October 2012

Shroom is right, metro mode needs to be signed, and desktop mode is the same as ever.
One of the big reasons is because it allows a developer, and so Microsoft, to state what their application can and can't use. This makes it much more difficult to hack m*snip*

Opencart is utterly terrible. If you can find an alternative, use it.
